Light winds in play for Spring yacht­ing se­ries

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

LIGHT winds were the or­der of the day as races one and two of the Port Dou­glas Yacht Club Spring Se­ries were con­tested.

Race one started in only 5 knots of East­erly breeze, and Doug Ryan on Shazam lead all the way to record yet an­other line hon- ours win. Ann Sea and Ruff Red filled the mi­nor plac­ings while Is­land Girl and Miriama brought up the rear of the field.

Ruff Red col­lected the hand­i­cap hon­ours from Is­land Girl and Ann Sea. Race two saw a slight im­prove­ment in the wind to 7 knots, and again it was Doug Ryan’s 2013 Syd­ney to Ho­bart en­trant Shazam that crossed first, with Ann Sea and Ruff Red again in the mi­nor plac­ings, and Is­land Girl and Miriama had to fin­ish with fad­ing winds.

Again Ruff Red took first place, fol­lowed by Shazam and Ann Sea. Af­ter the two races, Ruff Red leads from Is­land Girl and Ann Sea.

Race 3 of the Spring Se­ries has been resched­uled for next Sun­day, Septem­ber 29, due to the AGM be­ing held on Satur­day.
